We got the ex-player that the board wanted. John Rillie played for NBL in Australia, Gonzaga University and in Greece. John was one of Boise's top recruiters in his 6 years as assistant for Broncos. He first started as a DoBO in Boise. He has strong ties with Australia and Northwest recruits.
Rillie spent 16 years playing professional basketball internationally. From 1995-2009 he enjoyed stints in Australia with the Brisbane Bullets (1995), Adelaide 36ers (1996-98), West Sydney Razorbacks (1998-02 and 2003-04) and Townsville Crocodiles (2004-09), and spent 2009-10 with the New Zealand Breakers. Rillie also played one season (2002) with AEK Athens of the Euroleague.
From 1997-2004 Rillie was also a member of the Australian National Team, which he represented in the 2004 Athens Olympics.
I wonder if Paris Austin joins us too...
Great Job JP!!
